Tom 'Durrrr' Dwan Lines Up Jungleman12 For New Challenge

Tom 'Durrrr' Dwan Lines Up Jungleman12 For New Challenge Tom Dwan is currently up $1,844,430 against Patrik  Antonius, having played 38,974 hands over the past 18 months as part of the ‘Durrrr Challenge.’
With 50,000 hands being the finishing point for the marathon heads-up poker series, Tom Dwan has already started looking further a field for his next potential opponent. Despite promising the next shot to  Brian Townsend, it would now seem Dwan has his sights also set on the 20-year old online poker sensation known as jungleman12.
Few poker stories could be more inspirational that that of jungleman12, who only started playing online in 2008 at the $0.25/$0.50 cash table level. By the end of that year he had moved up to $10/$20 and was sitting on a $100,000 bankroll. By 2009 he was playing $25/$50 and had won$1 million and currently in 2010, he is $2,166,707 in profit after a total of 749,574 hands played.
Monday’s high stakes game at Full Tilt saw Dwan take a $100,000 hit at the $100/$200 game while playing jungleman12. Dwan then took the opportunity to pop the question.
durrrr: y dont u take challenge
durrrr: since u never lose to me
jungleman12: i will prob
jungleman12: maybe
jungleman12: isnt bt (Brian Townsend) next or something?
durrrr: i can do 2 at once
durrrr: we could obv play in like 2 weeks
jungleman12: k
durrrr: kk gg
durrrr: gl
Whether or not the challenge will go ahead is not at all certain right now, as the $500/$1,000 stakes already established in the current durrrr challenge is likely to be too high for jungleman12. However, if the two young pros manage to establish a mutually acceptable level, maybe at the $200/$400 game, then poker fans everywhere are likely to be treated to a potentially fast and explosive match which will set the poker community buzzing for some time.
